IN ART WE TRUST

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Escape News -

Con­tin­u­ing the legacy of many of the Na­tional Trust’s his­tor­i­cal houses – sev­eral of which were built with an art col­lec­tion at their hearts – is the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s Trust New Art pro­gramme, which com­mis­sions bound­ary-push­ing cre­atives to dream up site-spe­cific art in­stal­la­tions for the houses it man­ages. This month, you can catch a pink ab­stract pineap­ple in Hert­ford­shire’s Ber­ring­ton Hall’s Ge­or­gian gar­den (re­flect­ing the 18th cen­tury’s fond­ness for ex­otic fruit), French sculp­tor Bernar Venet’s rusted steel pieces be­yond the Ver­saillesin­spired Parterre Ter­race at Clive­den, and Dutch, Lon­don-based ce­ram­i­cist Bouke de Vries’ space-age mir­rored box in­spired by the gilt lus­tre­ware at Worces­ter­shire’s Croome Court ( left; na­tion­al­trust.org).
